Altdamm Has Been Captured!, TASS No. 1184, March 23, 1945
1460 x 1210 mm
Forces of the 1st Belarusian front have captured the city of Altdamm [Dabie] and eliminated the heavily fortified German springboard for attacks on the right bank of the river Oder, east of Stettin [Szczecin].
A daring, quick and nimble blow
To take the city. But there
We will not stop long.
We will continue west!
In anticipation of the awaited date,
Today we have a single cry:
All the cities we capture
Are just milestones on the way to Berlin.
